You only have two servers?  If so, then the cell absolutely depends on
the one with the lower IP address.  It get's an extra 1/2 vote during
Ubik elections, so out of a total of 2.5 votes your server at .6 only
got 1 vote for quorum -- so you lost your cell due to lack of quorum.

Also, if you dont have any RO copies of /afs on .6, it will fail to
find that..  The client will not fallback to the RW copy.  You should
make sure you have a RO clone on the same partition as the RW volume.
